Somebody alive here ?

Added by ToBo about 3 years ago

Hi everybody,

I just start with DomotiGA and I think its great, but after I discover that this forum is almost dead so I am not so sure any more to go ahead.

Best wishes...

Yes we are alive.

Dear rdnzl,
I see :-)

I dont want to insult you. Actually I think DomotiGA is a really powerful and great project. I can see you did already a huge job to create the software. But there is so less to find about it in the net. It seems there are only very few people who are using DomotiGA. There is nothing about the developer. All is very secret. No name, no email. On the twitter account there are actually only useless bla bla messages.

There is a generic email address on the website, which goes directly to rdnzl (Ron) ... So there isn't much secretness i think?

Domotiga is very much alive. ;-)

I thought of posting the same message :)

I'm surprised how little traffic there is - given this seems like a pretty nice project. I'm coming from MisterHouse because I'm a power user and liked the flexibility - but that project is a bit of a mess.

My searches for top home automation software in Linux don't even mention domotiga (I found it quite by accident). Not sure if some promotion is worthwhile.

I wonder if being written in Basic is turning off developers? Can't explain it...

Any idea how many people use Domotiga?

Forget it. This forum is dead. I tried DemotiGa, but the support is shit. May be its a clsosed group of people who are using this software.
I use IOBroker which is 100 times better anyway.

It was never mainstream (used by hunderd thousands of users), but it does what it should do ... If you want to go more mainstream, i would suggest something like Home Assistant (more other options are also very localized - e.g. like IOBroker is most useable if you read/write German). I use DomotiGa to push my device values onto the MQTT, which other applications (GUI, etc) can use ... DomotiGa is rock solid doing that.
